The invitation-only event will
address the changing audio landscape and will offer editors a chance to discuss
the latest post production technologies and new workflow advances.
John McKay, the founder/president of Virtual Katy and sound
editor for Lord of the Rings, will

introduce a new path for post that he feels pros must adapt to in order to
survive the onslaught of creative demands and supposed technology advancements.
Adrian Scott will lead a panel titled "The Cures for Today's
Challenges," which will discuss the experiences of yesterday and today, as well
as the pressures pros face to deliver faster and better packages. Topics will
include picture development, directing, picture editing and sound editing.

recordist (Harry Potter, Bond, The Golden Compass); Lee Herrick, feature dialogue/ADR supervisor (V for
Vendetta, The Golden Compass); McKay; and
Mike Prestwood Smith, audio editor/mixer (Harry Potter).

production. A cocktail party will conclude the evening. Those interested in
